Ariana Grande got quite emotional at her stop on ‘Honeymoon Tour’ at the Madison Square Garden in New York on 20th March, Friday. The One Last Time star singer dedicated her single My Everything to her late grandfather (popularly known as “Grandpa Grande”) to her rooters. Ariana could not stop her tears when the voice of her grandfather was heard in an audio clip which preceded her performance, said to Hollywood Life.
In the video clip, her grandfather could be heard saying, “Music, you want to do something in music? Go ahead and do it. Don’t be afraid of it. There’s so much music; you gotta work on it. Don’t let them challenge you; don’t let them intimidate you. Do your thing, that’s the only way to do it.”
Ariana’s grandfather was major influence in her career and he passed away in July 2014, when her brother, Frankie Grande, was shooting “Big Brother.” As Ariana paid her tribute to her late grandfather on November 3, 2014, her boyfriend Big Sean was by her side. The duo posed together for a snapshot that they each uploaded on their Instagram account.
Ariana captioned that snap: “on our way to grandps’ celebration of life earlier @bigsean.” While Big Sean uploaded the shot with Grande: “my baby.” As we know that the couple is very open about their relationship on their social networking accounts, nothing stays hidden from their fans’ eyes.
